No it is not contagious. It can be cause from a number of different things. The best thing you can do is go in and see your doctor they have things they can perscribe to you that will take care of it for you. Do not just start buying stuff and putting on it though.

Fingernail fungus is caused by bacteria. Failure to wash your hands can lead to this fungus. It can be contagious if you continue to let the fungus grown without attention.
